”Quite the opposite”: Woman snatches chain from man

Bengaluru: A 28-year-old woman, Asha alias Soundarya alias Kavitha has proved that Woman-can-do-anything-a-man-can-do. She allegedly snatched the gold chain of a man while he was walking alone in the city.

She was also been accused of robbery,
impersonating as a public servant, cheating by impersonation, and illegally selling property. And also been under judicial custody for more than a year.

On October 18, 2014 at the Uttaradi Math junction when the victim was walking at around 11.30 am she stopped him and questioned him, why he was smiling
at her. She threatened him and took away his gold chain worth Rs 40,000 and fled away on a scooter which did not have any registration number.

When she approached the Karnataka High Court recently for seeking bail the court dismissed her plea, and directed the lower court to complete her trial at the earliest.

The court ordered with directions to
the sessions judge to expedite the trial. It said. “The investigation is complete and charge sheet is filed against the petitioner-accused. Petitions are liable to be dismissed without expressing any opinion at this stage.”

Even the government advocate in the HC opposed her bail application, arguing that the petitioner is a habitual offender involved in many robbery cases and if she is let out on bail, she is likely to abscond and will not attend court regularly.
